“Pat­u­loy pa rin yung bless­ings na du­ma­dat­ing sa akin. At the same time, pat­u­loy yung pag­pa­pasaya natin sa at­ing Ka­pam­ilya,” the 23-year-old ac­tress said in a re­cent dig­i­tal in­ter­view. “Very thank­ful ako nandiyan ang Star Magic, Star Cin­ema and Star Mu­sic fam­ily na ta­la­gang pat­u­loy sa pagig­ing tu­lay sa pan­garap ko, which is go pa rin ako dahil sila yung nag­bi­gay sa akin ng gani­tong fairy­tale na life.”

May­may is cur­rently seen in Star Cin­ema’s dig­i­tal pod­cast “Lis­ten To Love: The Four Bad Boys and Me,” where she plays a DJ and the story’s nar­ra­tor. It is a project sans her love team part­ner Ed­ward Bar­ber. “At least we’re grow­ing as in­di­vid­u­als. But we still have up­com­ing projects to­gether,” she said.

Asked if she was one to fall for a bad boy, the Pi­noy Big Brother win­ner said she avoids those types, since the ex­pe­ri­ences of her mother and aunts have served as a cau­tion­ary tale.

“Not only my own ex­pe­ri­ences, but those peo­ple around me. Nagsim­ula sa nanay ko, kasi laki ako sa bro­ken fam­ily but be­cause of the love of my grand­par­ents, hindi ako nagku­lang sa pag­mama­hal. Natuto din ako sa love life ng mga Tita ko kasi bro­ken fam­i­lies din sila. Di ba nga, weak peo­ple pag nagsasama, lalakas,” she ex­plained.

“Hindi ako nanini­wala na you can change a bad boy. Once a bad boy, is a bad boy. You can­not con­trol who they are, but you can con­trol how you will choose. So kung pip­ili ka na lang, doon ka na lang sa good boy. Hindi din la­hat ng good boy bor­ing eh. May stan­dard ka pa rin kahit good boy ang gusto mo.”

Though she did not elab­o­rate, May­may said pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ences have taught her the im­por­tance of get­ting to know first the guy she in­tends to love. “Alamin mo rin kong pareho ba kayo ng love lan­guage, kung com­pat­i­ble ba kayo kasi hindi ibig sabi­hin na bagay kayo, yun na yun. Nan­doon pa rin tayo sa un­der­stand­ing, may com­mu­ni­ca­tion, faith­ful and loyal,” she said.

Be­fore em­bark­ing on a new re­la­tion­ship, the perky star said she is aim­ing to find her­self first and strengthen her faith. “Ha­hanapin ko muna ang sar­ili ko bago ako magma­hal uli. I’ll fo­cus first on my re­la­tion­ship with God. Para kung magma­hal ako ulit, hindi ako magdede­pend sa tao para pasayahin ako kasi any­time na iwan niya ko, kaya ko pa rin kasi puno ako ng pag­mama­hal sa Pangi­noon, sa mga tao sa paligid ko, at sa sar­ili ko.”
